Nevern Castle, or Castell Nanhyfer, is a motte and bailey castle which was constructed in 1108 on the site of an Iron Age promontory fort. The motte, 100 feet in diameter and once with a circular tower on the top, and stone buildings were surrounded by earthworks. There is a smaller, second motte outside the castle defences. Rhys ap Gruffudd was imprisoned by his sons in this tower which he built. He died there in 1195, bringing to an end Welsh rule in south-west Wales and after this the castle was abandoned.
